Just OK

I recently tried “Ribs” while visiting Leuven and it was just ok. Our server was very nice and the portions were actually very good. Unfortunately, my wife’s Penne Arrabiata simply had no spice. To be fair, it did have flavor, but not the spice we prefer. As for my chicken burger, it was a... read more

Been back to this restaurant for many years now, the food is very good and well priced. There is always a great atmosphere and the young staff are attentive and always ensure you have enough ribs which you can eat as much as you like!! Also had chicken skewers, steak and the Mexican burger all of which were perfectly cooked... More

Basic interior mated with a basic menu. Service is average, too. So, if you are looking for just a basic place to get your rib fix then go for it. Ribs are "all you can eat", the BBQ sauce is good and the cost is also fair.

A huge menu, enthusiastic staff and a cheerful atmosphere. I had a goats cheese salad I could not finish. those with me had a huge range of meat dishes, It is not cheap, but the food is plentiful.

It's not the best ribs I ever had. Can imagine students like the place (all you can eat ribs). Staff was average and a bit slow. Losing time chatting up some girls at an other table. Nice interior.

After hearing from this restaurant we decided to pay it a visit. The ribs were relatively cheap, but the quality was likewise. I've eaten better ribs (in Leuven even). Great atmosphere and good location.

Even more then the great spareribs, I loved the atmosphere in this place. Everything is perfectly balanced here: not too noisy, but with good ambient music at the perfect background volume. Not too spacy which gives a cosy feel, and yet also not too crowded either. A beautiful vintage interior. not too pricy and very good price-value ratio. Not too... More

Have eaten there twice, first time got pasta but saw the kebabs going to another table and they looked worth trying. Second time ordered, and everything from the presentation to the quality of the food made me glad I ordered them. Menus available in English which was a huge help and both times the young waiters were helpful, accommodating, and... More
